The Conservation Alliance (TCA) is a group of outdoor industry companies that disburses its collective annual membership dues to grassroots environmental organizations. TCA directs funding to community-based campaigns to protect threatened wild habitat, preferably where outdoor enthusiasts recreate. The Alliance was founded in 1989 by industry leaders REI, Patagonia, The North Face, and Kelty, who shared the goal of increasing outdoor industry support for conservation efforts. Today, TCA has more than 270 member companies from outdoor and related industries and disburses approximately $2 million to support conservation across the country.

This is an important and exciting time for The Conservation Alliance.  For over three decades, TCA has built a reputation for excellence in grantmaking and engagement of industry leaders to protect some of North America’s most important wild places.  Much has changed during that time, and TCA recognizes that the conservation landscape is shifting and demands new solutions to ensure success in the future, including the need for more effective policy solutions to address key environmental and conservation priorities and challenges, as well as the engagement of a broader and more diverse network of members and partners. 

The Conservation Alliance seeks an accomplished leader who demonstrates a keen understanding of and passion for the organization’s mission to protect and preserve wild spaces with a business-led approach, because the future of business depends on a healthy planet. The ideal candidate has experience working to address complex systemic and societal issues and understands the importance of collaboration in all facets or stages of problem solving.  This person must be ready to join with the Board and staff to lead TCA in pursuing new strategic goals in conservation and advocacy within a framework of inclusion.

An understanding of business principles applied to a nonprofit organization, particularly a background in scaling sustainable growth, promoting continuous improvement of program quality, and revenue enhancement and diversification, is required.

Proven success in raising significant resources from individuals, foundations, and corporations on behalf of the mission and organization is desirable. The preferred candidate is a trustworthy, strategic, and dependable leader who understands the mechanics and culture of a small nonprofit with significant aspirations for growth. This individual will be a strong listener with an inclusive, team-oriented management style that inspires, empowers, motivates, and develops staff while setting measurable goals and holding each other accountable. A genuine and authentic connection to nature and the outdoors is required.

The target salary for this position is $160,000 – $175,000 with some flexibility commensurable with experience.  Benefits include a robust health care package which include medical, dental and vision benefits, paid time off for vacation, family care, mental and physical health, religious holidays, civic duties and bereavement, as well as the opportunity to participate in a retirement plan.
